The best part of my job is the amazing friends I have made. Although we don’t all work together anymore, we try to get together as often as possible to catch up. This get together was months in the making and it was a perfectly relaxed night of wine and good food. What we ate: Bread and Butter – matchstick sourdough, house cultured butter ($4.00) … Continue reading Merchant’s Workshop
What we ate: Matcha Chocolate Fondue – Double ($18.75) This was alright. It’s a pretty basic fondue and honestly it wasn’t anything special. There was four little dishes of fruit (banana, apple, strawberry and pineapple), a cut up waffle and one brownie. Would I come back?

What I ate: The Keg Classic – New York Striploin (12 … Continue reading The Keg – Yaletown

What we ate: Chicken Tacos ($3.00 each), Vodka Coke ($3.00 each) and Warm Spinach and Artichoke Dip ($9.00) I’ve reviewed the Chicken Tacos at length, but this is the first time we got the dip. It was so good! There were a lot of artichoke pieces and the bread that it was served was with warm and garlicky. This dish was a total hit for … Continue reading Earls – Yaletown
